Last time we've showcased a teaser from an upcoming bossfight, now have a look at its Boss Checklist page for a glance at all the loot and collectibles!

New materials bring not only new weapons, but also extra tools! "Slippery" versions will help you use your explosives more efficiently and allow to reach through walls. They come for grenades, bombs, dynamite and even glowsticks and can be crafted using newly acquired Galipot!

Welcome to 2022!
It's been a while since any announcements, so it's about time we give you some updates. As tModLoader has gone into its public alpha stage and (hopefully) is on its way to a stable release, a decision has been made to fully port Rise of Ages content before making it publically available. While some content is still being moved over, here's one of the mechanics that we just finished working on.

Shown off for the first time in a short spoiler in 2019, druidic beast forms received major upgrades and additions and currently feature 3 pre-hardmode transformations with their own unique abilities.

Fleder form (Elderwood armor)

Insect form (Dreadheart armor)

Firebird form (Ashwalker armor)

But some portions of the mod needed more than an upgrade. Backwoods biome generation, which used to follow vanilla terrain, has been rewritten entirely to make the surface smoother and allow trees to grow denser. At the same time it received a new underground section full of entertwined roots and open caves, making it a more interesting place to explore and laying groundwork for future additions. The biome is still a work in progress due to custom trees not being added yet in the current tML version, but have a look at it on the map to get an idea of its new appearance.

Thought you would find this interesting: there's going to be at least one transformation in Terraria Labor of Love. Though the implementation (as a special type of mount) is quite different from what you've been doing in ROA.
